Item: 000397



A popular hat during the late 1800's. It has the styling of a top hat without being quite so dressy and is a wonderful daytime alternative to the ubiquitous derby. The hat is approximately 4.5 inches tall from the brim. Very versatile. USA-made and unlined. Brim is 2.75 inches wide. Available in sizes M - XL.

Poor Quality for the price you pay
Was not too happy with the quality of the hat, the crown felt like it was made of cardboard or plastic. Its got a great look, but the quality is cheap for the price you pay. This Coachmen is thin, light, more like a theater set hat than the real thing. I feel like I paid for an $80 hat and got a $50 hat. Even though I am not able to use it for the purpose I bought it for due to afraid of tear/ripping a hole in it every time I die in reenactment, I am still keeping it for my photography studio. To sum everything up I am Disappointed.

Its got a great look/design, but the quality is cheap. Iíve been spoiled by the Paragon Top Hat, which costs less but is fantastic quality and very sturdy. This Coachmen is thin, light, more like a theater set hat than the real thing, and it cost more! Yikes.

Good Hat
Needed a hat for a period correct wedding. Good fit. Sturdy construction. Fit the bill. I'm not a Victorian era type person but I still wear the hat. Says a lot about the looks and quality.

love love love it
I bought this hat when from the gentleman's section, but it works great for ladies, too. The quality is great and love the "felt weight" of it. Excellent fit and finish. I added some ribbons and feathers and will be wearing it to the symphony and beyond.....maybe everyday! Very pleased with this hat!!

Very stylish!
This hat is everything I dreamed it would be! Not quite a top-hat, not quite a cowboy hat but pure style. I am a 7 3/8 and the large could not fit better. It's easy to forget that you have it on. I love everything that I have purchased from this site, but this hat is special! buy with confidence, it will not disappoint you.

Best Deal for this Hat
I had been shopping for a while and saw similar hats for $130. I was able to try on the more expensive hat and took a shot at this since it was about half the price. There are some differences that the additional money buys you. The more expensive hat fit a little better and was of a higher quality as you might expect. However, for the price this hat was right on the money and will suit my purposes. I expect a little longer break in period as this hat is stiffer then the more expensive versions. The hat is a bit larger as a medium then the description would have you believe but in reading the other reviews I was prepared for this and it actually worked to my benefit. I am a 7 3/8 and the medium hat fit perfectly. Good product at the right price.
